Information on how to aid the victims of the deadly tornado in Oklahoma
I'm not super-excited by this hire in particular: I think we needed a bigger name to help get things moving in the right direction more quickly.
However, the fact is: state of the program right now, doesn't matter who we have as AD, the "Big Names" are just not going to come here.
I am curious why Hart initially went after Strong instead of Jones. Florida recruiting connections probably?
For those of you who think this is a "desperate hire," well, duh...UT Football is in a desperate situation. We fired a Hall of Fame coach, had a disastrous choice as a replacement, followed by a rebuilding job that failed to launch. It's desperate times, folks.
However, nothing about Coach Jones says he's a bad choice to be our coach, other than the factor of time: he hasn't had the time to become the 'Big Name' we need. Maybe this is where it happens.
